January news in ‘Vigil Aunty’

The January edition of Jennifer Cooper‘s ‘Vigil Aunty’ includes a report on the visit of The Lions Part and The Green Man for Twelfth Night Wassail.

It also gives details of the next Vigil to be held on 23rd January 2024.

This is traditionally the Crossbones ‘Portal to Imbolc’ (the fire festival dedicated to Bridie or Brighid) when we collectively say:

‘Bridie I am here with my goose-feather quill
To trace the lucent songs of the Ancients.

Bridie I am here with the chalice and snake
To receive and transmit your healing benediction.

Bridie I am here with the bellows and tongues
To tend your sacred fire of transformation.’

(‘Imbolc’ from ‘Grail’ by John Constable aka Crow)

At each January Vigil since the death of David Bowie, we enshrine and honour him as our ‘Angel of the Outcast’.
